GoFundMe Page Launched

Hello, this is Jeremy Peeples and if you're reading this, you either know me in real life or you've seen my writing or videos online.  Unfortunately, while I love doing both of those things, they don't pay many bills. Paid writing gigs have eluded me and my Youtube income is about $30 a month.

I've got a lot of bills piling up here, mainly related to my mother's estate. Legal fees are currently at $2,8000 and I've got a property tax bill for nearly $1,800. I've tried covering everything myself, but I can't keep doing this. I've tried cutting corners with my monthly expenses by nixing health insurance and going with a $3 per day food budget by just spreading a 7-11 pizza over two days, but that is far from an ideal solution for anything beyond malnutrition.

I realize I can't keep making those kind of cuts and need to focus on my health as well. If my health fails, then there's no one to care for the cats and that brings me to the next big issue. My 17 1/2 year old cat Spud was recently diagnosed with the beginnings of a kidney problem. In the past month, she hasn't been drinking abnormally, but she has dropped weight and hasn't eben eating much over the last couple of days. I want to take her to the vet as soon as I can so that if this lack of hunger is caused by her kidneys, that issue can be treated as soon as possible instead of waiting.

Waiting too long ended the life of my family's first cat Rocky in 2006 and I don't want that same painful fate to befall her. It was a crushing blow made even worse by the fact that it was so preventable. Thanks for taking the time to read this and any amounts are appreciated. Even if this doesn't wind up with everything covered, I'd be content with a $50 total since that helps to cover the cost of cat food or a basic exam.
